Matej and Chelsea Get Married

Emma and I had the honour of joining our friends Matej and Chelsea for their wedding recently. While I was chided a few times for sticking my camera in peoples' faces a little too much, I think we all had an excellent time and I wanted to have a few snaps to remember it by. Oh, and the food was excellent! =)

What are you talking about? Everybody loves pictures of the backs of people's heads!

[ Distracted photographer ]

I think I might have been distracting the official photographer. (And I also think I need to start a new gallery on this site with pictures I've taken of other people taking pictures!)

Uh oh, here come the waterworks...
